Between my Unwanted Friend Ennui and I

Ennui vibes

It’s been a long long long time hot minute since my last blog post. ┬áSomeone actually asked if I was dead because I was not posting ­čśé. It’s a bit of dark humour but I appreciate it, it keeps me on my feet making sure I can’t just slack off anytime I want.

The time is almost 3 am, I am writing this because I can’t sleep. ┬áAlso because I have put it off long enough.

I am listening to ‘Take me Home Country Road by John Denver’ on repeat . There’s a particular line that resonates with me- “Take me home to the place I belong”. Probably because right down I don’t feel like I belong anywhere.[...]

The Defender || My Meyer-Briggs Personality Test Results

Meyer-Briggs Test The Defender ISFJ

This week I decided to take a Meyer-Briggs personality test from www.16personalities.com, just for kicks and I found out that my personality type is ISFJ( The Defender).

I am just going to give you a short excrepts of various facets of this personality type from the website and my thoughts on them.

” The ISFJ personality type is quite unique, as many of their qualities defy the definition of their individual traits. Though possessing the Feeling (F) trait, ISFJs have excellent analytical abilities; though Introverted (I), they have well-developed people skills and robust social relationships; and though they are a Judging (J) type, ISFJs are often receptive to change and new ideas. Combining the best of tradition and the desire to do good, ISFJs are found in lines of work with a sense of history behind them, such as medicine, academics and charitable social work.”[...]

Book Review || Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

“I was 9 years old when mother threw me out of a moving car”.

BORN A CRIME

Even if you didn’t want to read Born a crime ,you now want to know why this mother decides to abuse her son. Dig a little deeper and you will find this was an act of love, done in the name of survival.

I actually debated whether or not to do this review in light of the xenophobic attacks in South Africa. Trevor Noah’s book tells us who he is and where he has comes from in a light and witty manner.[...]

Event|| FashionbyDaisy Pop up Sale

MY WEEKEND

So guys how was your weekend? Mine was great! I spent most of it buying clothes, we all know that’s the dream, yayy for any good sale.

Anyway, there has been a lot of buzz about the fashionbydaisy pop up sale and when I got wind of it, I told everyone about it. Items were going to retail between 500 to 2000 naira, which was almost too cheap to be true.

I woke up early on Sunday because I wanted to get to the sale first, I got there a few minutes after 12pm and I was surprised by two things.
1 There were already people who had finished shopping and were leaving.
2. The person who was leaving was a classmate from my primary school in Minna, Niger state, who I hadn’t seen in about 15 years.[...]

Inspiration ||The Flapper / Fringe Trend: A throwback

Hello everyone, I hope your week has been going good. Mine has been just there and MTN decided that there will be no network so our hands are on our chins.

Today I am going to be sharing a trend that is giving me all the feels- Flapper Dresses. This look is one that I hope is making a slow but sure comeback.

Let me take you back to the roaring twenties, think Jazz, affluent and fancy parties, and the Great Gatsby. In this decade women began to wear more comfortable clothes, letting go of the restrictive fashion of the yesteryears.[...]
